The overall turnout was driven by varied participation across different genders:

  • Male voters: 61.48%
  • Female voters: 63.00%
  • Third gender voters: 21.96%

West Bengal emerged as the frontrunner with a remarkable turnout of 78.45%, almost equally balanced between male and female voters. The state’s third gender voter participation was also significantly high at 38.22%.

Ongoing Repolls and Final Turnout

Additionally, the final turnout will only be confirmed post-counting, which includes the counting of postal ballots from service voters, absentee voters (such as those over 85 years of age, persons with disabilities, and essential service providers), and election duty staff.

Phase 6 Preparations

As Phase 6 of the General Elections 2024 approaches, the ECI has released the list of registered electors for the 58 PCs set to vote on 25 May 2024. This phase will cover constituencies across Bihar, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand, NCT of Delhi, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal.


The steady voter turnout reflects the robust democratic engagement across the nation, despite varying regional participation rates. The ECI continues to ensure a smooth electoral process, upholding the democratic spirit of the world’s largest democracy.
